This system draws on the bold, iconic silhouette of the original PlayStation®4 system, combining a simple block construction with ports hidden between beveled layers. Even the triple tier architecture of the PlayStation®4 Pro console is designed to boost its performance by optimizing the airflow across high-power components. The PlayStation® family mark in the center of the top cover has a high-quality mirror-like finish, which adds an even greater air of verve and regality.
